We will ensure that ventilation / air conditioning is on and seating will be spaced out more than in the past.

We will still be able to offer tea and coffee after the meeting, this will be served from our usual table, in plastic cups, please return your empties in the box provided. We regret that there will not be any biscuits on offer.

please try not to need change.
